Farmers transformed the landscape by ploughing and planting olive groves and vineyards for the production of fine oils and wines. Today these same products are the symbols of the region
Umbria is dotted with medieval hamlets and remote monasteries. In just a few kilometers from any town you can find yourself immersed in nature with centuries-old trees, deep caves, and mountains steeped in ancient legends. Small bubbling springs and mountain lakes abound, but also important landmarks like Lake Trasimeno, the Tiber River, and the Marmore Waterfalls define the landscape. They all seem to have been created to inspire painters and poets.
Visit Umbria and fall in love with its rare beauty!
My Hometown | Orvieto
Orvieto is home to one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Italy, known as the Duomo. The cathedral is one of the most majestic creations in Italian architecture, with its magnificent gothic facade decorated with mosaics and bas-reliefs. A splendid rose window by Orcagna catches the light. Among the many works of art inside is a masterpiece of Italian painting dating to the 15th and 16th centuries, the fresco cycle by Fra’ Angelico and Luca Signorelli located in the San Brizio Chapel. Orvieto also offers fascinating Etruscan archeological sites and necropolises, and its art and cultural heritage is one of the richest in Italy.
